RefWorks to be Discontinued

Due to budget constraints, access to this database ended December 31, 2020. We recommend that no new accounts be created via FAU Libraries. Users had until January 31, 2021 to access their accounts and export references. Users must download attachments and re-attach them separately to a different citation manager. For questions, please contact

See our guide, RefWorks Transition, for details on transitioning your RefWorks citation information and documents to another citation manager.
